Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In current times where business is the leading actor of society and economic strains prevail, it is important to be able to investigate the dysfunction and deviance they can produce. Under this notion, the current research is investigating the influence of business crime, with a specific focus in the offences committed from businesses against their workforce over employment legislation. The research is delimited to companies of the third sector of the economy, commerce and financial services in particular. Entrepreneurship, business practice, employment legislation and economic strain are all being examined in order to investigate the phenomenon in Greece. The fieldwork consists of secondary statistical analysis of reports of the relevant regulatory offices and qualitative interviews with the four target groups: employees – victims of business crime, inspectors, trade union members and business managers. Unpaid enforced overtime and illegal employment constitute the two prevailing offences and create a work environment of insecurity and fear. Structural factors like state promoted entrepreneurship, changes in legislation and economic strain play an important role as do low reporting and conviction rates. The conclusions are useful in order to enhance the interest on business crime in modern criminological research and can additionally inform policy and practice.
